  Wilson was nominated by Jan Tankersley (R-Brooklet) after Ralston asked state representatives to submit to him the names and resumes of superintendents, teachers and parents/grandparents they believed would be interested in serving on the committee. Wilson has more than 20 years of experience in public education both as a chief financial officer and now as its superintendent


  Wilson said when Ralston contacted him, he agreed to commit his time.  He said he feels the community will benefit from his involvement and he wanted to make sure Bulloch County and other school systems are well represented.


  The first of the Committee’s three scheduled meetings occurred July 30 in Atlanta and focused on reviewing the Common Core standards, how they came about, how they were adopted in Georgia, and their impact on the state.  Members could possibly discuss other federal roles in education as well.
